Well, sure - if you ignore the imprisoning of political opponents, the corruption & looting of the government, fradulent elections, closing down media he disagrees with & nationalizing private businesses then Putin is a real hoot.
Which basically places Putin closer to Obama, on the ideological scale. Heck, if it wasn't for the homo-thing, they'd be practically identical. Consider this: Obama is pro-homo for cynical and opportunistic political reasons, and Putin is anti-homo for the same reason. If Obama was anti-homo, and Putin wanted to "stick" it to the U.S., he'd be wearing eyeshadow and lavender pumps.

Careful there. You don't want to pop FR's love affair balloon with the communist dictator.
